For sneakerheads, the Nike Air Zoom Generation LeBron 1 First Game sneaker is more than just a shoe—it’s a piece of history. This classic footwear was the first release from Nike to be associated with basketball great LeBron James, and it set the tone for his ongoing relationship with one of the world’s biggest athletic brands. Let’s take a look at what makes this model so special.

The shoe comes with a white leather upper complimented by red accents around the midsole and heel, as well as branding details on the tongue and heel tab. Additionally, it also features Zoom Air technology in the midsole that provides superior cushioning and responsiveness, while its outsole comes equipped with a herringbone pattern that improves traction. It’s no wonder why this sneaker has become such a classic among basketball fans who remember when LeBron first burst onto the scene with these shoes on his feet.

The timing of this re-release couldn’t be more perfect, as Nike tries to regain some momentum in their basketball division. By digging into their archives and releasing classic gems like the  Lebron 1 First Game, they are sure to keep their fans excited about what else they have in store for them. Not only will existing fans feel nostalgic about this release but new fans too can experience what made these shoes so iconic back when they were first released 17 years ago!

Lebron 1 First Game Resale Value Vs Time

The chart above gives us a breakdown of the average sale price of the shoe since March 10, 2023. As you can see prices went from $234 to $210 from 3/10 to 3/14, then up to $256 the very next day. They went back down to $230 and $233 from the 16th to the 17th and up to $240 on the 18th. On the 19th, another increase was experienced as the highest average sale price was reached at $280. To further investigate this, let’s find the five number summary.

Minimum: 200
Quartile Q1: 214.75
Median: 230
Quartile Q3: 251.25
Maximum: 399

The lowest sale recorded was $200 for several sizes ( a size 8, 2 size 8.5, a size 9, 9.5 3 size 10.5, and a size 11). 25% of the shoe sold for prices from $200 to $215 ( see next chart for sizes), while half of them sold for prices between $215 and $251. The top 25% sales were between $251 and $399. The highest sale recorded was $399, for two size 16’s. There were four outliers, irregular values ( $319,$358, $399, $399) corresponding to sizes 11,13,16 and 16. With these removed from the data, the resulting average resale value is $232 with an 11% volatility. At this price, you’re looking at a +$20 profit margin, an 11% mark up ( below average). The next chart will show you the current earnings or losses by size sold so you can see if any sizes are worth reselling.

Nike Air Zoom Generation Lebron 1 First Game Earnings losses by size sold

23% of the sales led to losses or no profit ( sizes 8-9). 15% led to earnings under $15 ( sizes 9.5 and 10). 31% generated profits between $20 and $40 ( sizes 10.5-12) while another 15% led to earnings between $40 and $60 ( sizes 13 and 140. Sizes 7 and 16 generated the highest margins $81 and $172 respectively. But I’ll be careful about picking up a size 7 for resale ( only 1 sale was recorded and usually those sizes don’t do too well).

What’s the verdict? The larger the size, the better, if you’re a day trader I’ll only recommend targeting sizes 11 and above, even if they go down after the shoe releases officially, they’ll still leave you with a 5% to 10% mark up.
